1969 Parade Main Street Flushing NY
This shocking video, no, not video, this shocking film was shot three months after I got married, about four miles to the North.
The "Peace on Earth" float was a nice touch, the Vietnam War still had a lot of wind in its sails. It just all looks so forever ago. Well, not all of it, the go-go dancers are very Quentin Tarrentino.
I managed to live in nearby College Point for twenty-seven years and I never even knew there was such a thing as the Flushing Thanksgiving Day Parade.
